Challenge Roundup for May 2012

Hi all! I can’t believe how this month flew by. Hate to try and rush my life away but I hope June is just as quick. The Girl needs a break from all the drama at school. With summer coming, I wonder how my reading and my challenges will fare.

I managed to get a few things read for my challenges this month.

5th Canadian Books Challenge. Two more books added to this challenge, Buffalo Hunt and The Republic of Nothing. That makes it 10/13. Just 3 more books and 1 month left. I can do it!

The Audiobook Challenge. One more book added to this one, The Black Tower. I haven’t seen much that I wanted to listen to this month. That puts me at 9/12.

My Genteel Ladies in Foreign Lands Project is now at 2, since I read In Morocco this month. I need a little break after that one.

I’m at a standstill for the rest of the challenges: Gender in SFF and Once Upon a Time Challenge. Maybe next month.

Non-Reading Challenge

So I didn't quite make it to 8 pins for Trish’s Pin It and Do It Challenge but I did do 7! You can see the other pins here, here and here. Yesterday I made this Spicy Shrimp & Green Apple Salad. I actually heated everything through and served it on rice. It was really good! It loved this challenge. Thanks, Trish!



  1. That salad looks so good! What a nice variation to serve it warm, I'm sure it suits those flavors very well.

  2. Seven is pretty dang fantastic! After seeing yours and Heather's shrimp pins, I bought some shrimp (frozen). So now just need to do it.
